Full-Sized Sound

Don't let the stand-mount speakers fool you, the sound in this system is huge.  The crossover-less speakers output tremendous energy, with a full-sized, full-bodied sound that can embarrass bigger stand-mount speakers and even floorstanders in terms of bass, certainly one of the best around.  The system's bass definition is superb, as well as its timbre and transparency - and many other systems will sound veiled in comparison, in part due to the crossoverless design of the speakers.  Of course, it's a combination of the entire system, room treatment, and careful tweaking as well that has produced the excellent results.
